[Distutils] import problem using setuptools (resend without html)

I examined which modules python has imported (sys.modules).
when using the .exe in Scripts dir, most imports have 'mypackage' insert 
before module name, eg: mypackage.b
but when importing from c.py, this does not happen; it is imported as  b
So python thinks it is another module....

This does not happen when running start.py directly (as 'python start.py')

So I guess this is something done by setuptools, probably pkg_resources

But...how do I solve this problem?

best regards, Henk-Jan
